Built on a 64 X 64 Extra Large lot, Applewood Farms features a spacious four bedroom, two bath farm house. Perfect for large families and pet owners.

Game Version: 1.55.4.022001
Required Content: World Adventures, Pets, Ambitions, Generations, and Night Life
Lot Size: 64 x 64
Lot Type: Residential
Furnished: 202,191
Unfurnished: 130,466
----------------------------------------------
EDIT!!!
----------------------------------------------
I want to give more people an opportunity to install this lot so I've gone back and removed all store content and edited the lot to use less expansion packs. I also noticed an extremely annoying habit of my horses (and now zombies) wandering into the old apple orchard and ruining the trees. To fix this I initially tried adding a fence around the orchard but I didn't find it ascetically pleasing. In the long run I decided to remove the orchard and instead add a couple more animal pens. I also updated the outside of the farm house a bit and removed all the insect/fishing spawners I had previously included.

Although it's not included I recommend placing the Fowl and Feathers Chicken Coop from the Sims 3 store on the lot.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I want to give more people an opportunity to install this lot so I've added a second copy of Applewood Farms that excludes all the custom content from the Sims Store. Both packages are included in the download file. Re-download it to get the second version.

This is a beautiful lot, especially at night time. How did you get the fireflies to spawn?

thank you for making a no cc version of this lot. I have been looking for a place that had room for more than two horses.

Thank you for making a no cc version of your wonderful house, most people don't. It's saddening when I see so many wonderful lots that I can't use because of the cc or expansion stuff that I do not own.

Beautiful house, keep up the great work.

This is a nice lot! I'm trying to build a family with enough wealth to purchase this lot to use (instead of cheating). For those who are having performance issues with this lot, I did notice that this lot did have many overlapping spawners for the beetles, butterflies, etc. There were also several places with the same spawner stacked on top of each other 4 or more times. This can cause performance issues in your game. I noticed this on the Non-CC version. I cannot speak for the CC version. Until the creator makes a fix, the best thing to do, if you can, is open the lot in build/buy mode, then use the buydebug cheat and delete the overlapping spawners. Then save your lot/neighborhood. Doing so may correct some performance issues with this lot.
Happy Simming!

I would love a version that does not have any of the spawners. Unfortunately, when I placed it I had to rotate the lot so it faced towards the road which tripled all the spawners. Some I couldn't get to to delete because they were under the house :/
